Stream TV Networks Launching Glasses-Free 3D Television
Stream TV Networks, Inc., the producer of the eLocity brand of mobile tablets, has announced it will be unveiling a brand new television set with 3D capabilities without the need for glasses. The company is debuting its new television line at Consumer Electronics Show (CES (News - Alert)) in Las Vegas.
Stream TV Networks, Inc. is a Philadelphia-based company that was founded in 2009 to serve a consumer market seeking enhanced entertainment and communication experiences through quality devices. The company is trying to make a name for itself with its new technology, Ultra-D.
Research firm NPD’s DisplaySearch unit reported that 6.6 million 3D LCD TVs shipped during their third quarter representing a gain of 27 percent over the shipments from previous quarters. Back in November, the firm said they expect around 21.5 million 3D televisions to ship this year. However, Nielsen put out a study showing that 57 percent of people would not buy a 3DTV because they didn’t want to wear the special glasses required to watch 3D programming; this is where Stream TV Networks comes in.
The company is claiming that Ultra-D “surpasses all 3D viewing experiences offered to date.” Instead of using active or even passive shutter glasses, Ultra-D uses proprietary hardware and software, which will allow the audience to view both 2D and 3D content. The new technology does not require the viewer to put on 3D glasses, which is necessary with other 3DTVs.
“We are extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish with our Ultra-D technology. It is capable of creating a significant shift in the way people view media, comparable to the transition from black and white to color TV,” said Mathu Rajan, CEO of Stream TV Networks, Inc.
This new television line has been created with technology lovers in mind. The technology is designed to work with any digital input, including Blu-ray, DVD, PC gaming, Internet, cable and satellite TV content. Stream TV Networks thought ahead, creating technology that allows for users to increase or decrease the 3D rendering effect making it personalizable for almost anyone’s needs.
“Our ultimate goal was to create a solution that addresses existing concerns impeding the adoption of 3D-consumer aversion to expensive glasses, viewer discomfort, variance in individual vision and preference and the slow creation of 3D content. It seems we were aiming for the impossible but we’ve made it possible and will be sharing these hard-won achievements with consumers in 2012. Ultra-D is the next generation 3D technology,” said Rajan.
